In memory of
LLOYD DODSON JONES
July 1, 1918 - Aug. 9, 2002 Lloyd D. Jones is considered an icon in the Westchester County community due to his dedication, conviction and commitment to leadership initiatives that have made a permanent difference. During the early 60's, Lloyd brought to Westchester a provocative vision for change in "race matters." He was responsible for the initiation of partnerships with the leaders of university, government, business and education which resulted in policies of inclusion and participation that continue today. As the first African American to be appointed to an officership of the National Bank of Westchester and as Chair of the Urban League of Westchester, and the Westchester Public and Private Industry Council (PIC), he brought people of all races, religions, and classes to work together to break down the barriers of equal access and opportunity for African Americans. His participation in the numerous organizations reflect his passion and expertise. Until his final days before entering the hospital, he continued from his home to encourage, motivate, and challenge. Among his many leadership organizations are New York State Housing Finance Agency, American Bankers Association, American Institute of Banking, Mercy College Board of Trustees, Iona College Advisory Board, New York State Task Force on Entrepreneurship, Mental Health Association of Westchester, Lifetime member of NAACP to highlight a few among many others. He was the recipient of several awards, among them the prestigious Governor's Award from the Westchester Community Opportunity Program; the Tuskegee Alumni Award of Merit; the Tuskegee Athletic Hall of Fame; the USA Presidential Summer Jobs Award (for youth); the BOD Award from the Urban League of Westchester; Mercy College Board of Trustee's and the Distinguished Performance Award from the National Alliance of Business. Lloyd D. Jones was born July 1, 1918 in Chillicothe, OH, into a close family legacy, the second of eight children of Reverend Charles A. Jones and Roseanna Raney. He departed this life on Friday, August 9, 2002 at Sound Shore Medical Center, New Rochelle, NY. In 1942, Lloyd married Verna L. Simpson Hunster. To this union were born four children: Sharrie, Timothy, Toni, and Kim. Lloyd was a good Christian steward and worked on the Finance Committee in his church, St. Simon's. He was a lifelong member and supporter of his father's church, Zion Baptist, in his hometown of Chillicothe, OH. Lloyd attended Tuskegee Institute in Tuskegee, AL from 1936 to 1940, where he was a star athlete commonly known as "Drag" Jones and where he had the opportunity to work for George Washington Carver. He furthered his education obtaining a teaching degree from Columbia's Teachers College prior to his retirement from the military. Mr. Jones was drafted into the Army in 1942. He served in WWII in Europe, Asia, and Africa. He served his country for 22 years and retired a Major, although on the executive promotion list for Lieutenant Colonel in 1964 where he instead took a position at the National Bank of Westchester (NBW). After retirement, Lloyd remained active in the community always remembering from whence he came. He believed strongly in giving back. When needed, Lloyd was willing to provide that helping hand. He personified a magnificent human being. He commiserated with everyone from the grassroots folks to the boardroom folks. He never met a stranger. To know him was to like him and respect him. He truly loved all people and never met anyone with whom he couldn't communicate. Lloyd Jones was a wonderful, loving husband and father who was devoted to his family. He exhibited a strong Christian faith, instilled in him by his father, which provided the solid foundation for his relationships with family and friends. Lloyd was a wise man encompassing a sense of wit and humor. He lived a full, happy life while committed to serving others. He was preceded in death by his parents, Reverend C.A. Jones and Roseanna Raney Jones; his brothers Roy Jones, Atlas Jones, Wallace Jones; and his sister Marsena Wingo. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 60 years, Verna L. Simpson Hunster; married daughters Sharrie L. Jones Wiggins Middleton and Charles; Kim Melani Jones Haynes and Theodore, both of San Antonio, TX; Toni Janene Jones Evans and her husband Bill of Montgomery, AL; and his son Timothy D. Jones of White Plains, NY; grandchildren Stephen Lloyd Wiggins and Brian Edward Wiggins of Houston, TX; Joshua Micah Haynes and Alisha Nicole Haynes of San Antonio, TX; great grandchild Phillip Lloyd Scott of Houston, TX, and numerous other relatives and friends.
